Youth sports have always been a tradition for the community of Shafter. For those who love sports it probably started at the Shafter Recreation. Providing the youth with quality programs that build character, leadership, sportsmanship, and how to play as a team. This is a great start if you are just trying to have fun or even if you want to be competitive this is the place to be. Led by Sports Coordinator Jessie Samaniego a young man, full of energy, who loves sports and brings his best in helping the youth of Shafter.
